Greenwood appeared in trouble as medical staff rushed onto the pitch to help her which saw her given oxygen.

Belgian star Jassina Blom was on the other end of the clash but did not appear to be in as much pain.

Greenwood was taken off on a stretcher after almost 12 minutes of treatment.

Fans took to social media to share their concern for the defender.

One posted: “Alex Greenwood has taken a big hit to the head. Three physios on the pitch and she’s not moved since going down. Concerning.”

A second wrote: “Awful clash of heads in the Lionesses game. Hope Alex Greenwood is OK, one of the nastiest I’ve seen.”

A third commented: “That was a sickening clash of heads! Not looking good for Alex Greenwood, hope she is okay.”

Another added: “Seriously praying for Alex Greenwood, this isn’t looking good.”

Other fans slammed the coverage as it focused on the injury and showed multiple replays.

One said: “Why have @itvfootball got to show Greenwood’s injury 5 times.”

However, the broadcaster was clear in pointing out that the images were coming from the hosts.

ITV commentary said: “These are the hosts’ pictures we’re seeing here.”

They then later added: “Unfortunately we’re seeing these images again.”
